CYPRESS, Texas — Infertility is more common than most people realize. According to the CDC, about 10 percent of women in the U.S. between the ages of 15 and 44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant.
But on Valentine’s Day, a Cypress couple showed us how their journey through infertility was paved with luck, faith, hope and the power of love.
Call it bad luck because Andrea and James, and their doctors, had no other reason as to why the couple couldn’t have a child.
Five and a half years of hormone treatments, several attempts at invitro fertilization, two miscarriages, a pulmonary embolism… and dwindling hope.
“It’s devastating to both of us… again, I was the emotional one.” said Andrea.
“James masked his emotions… to be strong for me.” she said.
